Pentagon inadvertently withheld 1/3 of Taguba Report

"At least 2,000 pages might have been missing from the copy of the Army report on soldiers' abusive treatment of Iraqi prisoners that was delivered to the Senate Armed Services Committee. The 6,000-page report, compiled by Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba, formed the basis for hearings this month into the allegations. Taguba found 'numerous incidents of sadistic, blatant and wanton criminal abuses' had been inflicted on Iraqis held at Abu Ghraib prison... 'Certainly, if there is some shortfall in what was provided, it was an oversight,' [Pentagon spokesman Lawrence Di Rita] said... committee aides noticed the report was missing a third of its pages after they divided the document and its 106 annexes into separate binders, stacking them and comparing the stack with an already counted stack of 6,000 pages."
